Project Glass

Project Glass is Google's effort to make a wearable computer system and it's come up with a smart pair of glasses with an integrated heads-up display and a battery hidden inside the frame (think fighter pilot).
This is not a new idea, by all means,  but Google's mammoth funds and a dogged determination  will mean that Project Glass will have a very good chance of becoming mainstream.

Project Glass will be released to the masses early in 2014. The latest news is that developers will receive a special ‘explorer edition' unit at some time in 2013.

As far as I can see (no pun intended) Google's glasses will possibly use a transparent LCD or AMOLED display to put information in front of your eye. It will have location based software thanks to a camera and GPS, and you can scroll and click on information by tilting your head, and according to Google the controls will be very easy to master, and of course there will be the ubiquitous voice control.

It is yet to be seen whether or not it will run Android or a stand alone system. It will have though the usual GPS, 3G/4G, WIFI, Bluetooth 4.0 and motion sensors. It will also have a front facing camera with flash for taking instant pictures.

I have just given you a brief look at Google’s Project Glass here, what the future holds nobody knows just yet. Will this change the way we live are lives forever? I certainly believe its a step towards a world changing idea.
